Question about Uniden DXI-5186/2 Cordless Phone (b0001w9ijq)

1 Answer

I'd like to know what levels of radiation are given off by the base of this phone. Company would not (could not) help.

I know all cordless phones emit some radiation, just checking to see if this model is on low end or not. I sit with the base just 2 feet from me for hours each day. Since I feel sick near a wireless router or microwave in use, am now concerned about my phones.

The signals emitted from a router and microwave are both much stronger than that of a cordless phone and its base. Depending on the model it will not attempt to connect to the phone if it is not in use or if it is sitting in the holster so there is no concern for signals in these situations. However, even if there is a signal sent there should be no concern, even for those more easily affected by such signals, because of the weakness of the waves in question.

SOURCE: Cordless phone conflict with wireless home computer router

It looks like it's been solved by purchasing a new 1.8GHz phone- the new one seems to be having no problems. The retailer shop man said they often hear of this type of problem and recommend the 1.8GHZ models -- wish they'd told us that before we bought the previous one!!!

Phone is not ringing


Unplug your Uniden Cordless Phone and plug in a regular un-powered phone. If it rings your cordless base station is bad and you will need a new one if it does not ring then there is a problem on your phone line and you need to contact your phone company. Note, the phone company will charge you for repairs inside your house.

I have no dial tones on our two uniden 5.8GHz cordless phones. New batteries were installed.


Make sure the phone and the phone base is turned on. Check the phone cables at the back of the phone base where you charge your cordless phone. It should be properly connected to the phone jack on the wall and at the back of the phone base. Try unplugging and replugging it back in. If that fails, try changing the phone cable. If still there's nothing, try to connect another phone on the phone line. If you get a dial tone, it means you have a problem with the wireless phone set, if not, contact your phone company.

Callers attepting to call me either get one ring followed by disconnect or just a continous busy signal; however I can still call out. Phone company says the actual phone lines are okay. After...


Is it on all three phones that you experience this? Calls never come in to any of the units? If so then someone is happening at the phone box level. If it's one particular handset then it's a configuration issue / hardware issue with that handset.

Let me know and we can fix this, can you please confirm the make / model of the phone system?

No dial tone at all


if the non-cordless phones are ok, it sounds as if the cordless handsets are the only ones not working, have you charged the batteries on those handsets ok and are there any signs if life, eg lights or on-screen messages ? Are they switched off ?
If there are signs of life, check the level of charge, if dead completely, take it/them to the main unit and put on charge for about 10 hours, if they work for only a short time and you have had the phones for a few years, then you will need to replace the re-chargable cells as they don't last forever and they are not holding the charge.
Hope this has given you some clues.....

Get another telephone and connect the telephone cord from your cordless phone to it. If it works, then you know the problem is with your GE cordless phone. If it doesn't, try replacing the telephone cord. If still no good, call your telephone company.
